michael bloomberg, because of former congressman gabrielle giffords that there is a possibility of doing something now or is it simply the possibility of beginning the conversation? >> the it seems like it was the beginning of a conversation that would end in failure even two, three weeks back. if you talked to people that were inside the white house and working with joe biden i don't think there was a lot of hope that they thought they could ever get through an assault weapon ban in the house and the senate. for actually, though, it's not been michael bloomberg's actions over the past several weeks or gabrielle giffords or joe biden's that i think has made the biggest difference. i think the reason why the political landscape is moving as quickly as it is on this issue and why the polls are moving is because the abhorrent behavior of the national rifle association and their reaction not only to newtown but wayne lapierre's press conference, the news of the past few days of a commercial that actually talked about the president's own children and takes their personal security in and

senate. for actually, though, it's not been michael bloomberg's actions over the past several weeks or gabrielle giffords or joe biden's that i think has made the biggest difference. i think the reason why the political landscape is moving as quickly as it is on this issue and why the polls are moving is because the abhorrent behavior of the national rifle association and their reaction not only to newtown but wayne lapierre's press conference, the news of the past few days of a commercial that actually talked about the president's own children and takes their personal security in and turns that into a political attack ad as well as an app on iphone that originally was targeted for agings four and up where kids could engage in target practice on their parents' iphone using assault weapons. but, charlie, with every misstep that wayne lapierre and the n.r.a. makes, they make the president and joe biden and michael bloomberg's dream of comprehensive gun control all that more possible. look at the polls that just came out this last week, the "washington post"/abc news poll now shows that a

swing districts across america. not just from michael bloomberg but obviously from gabby giffords' efforts and others. and you're going to see whatever money the nra spends in 2014 you'll see that double, triple, quadrupled from people who support sensible gun control. so what once was the safe vote in a lot of districts is no longer going to be the safe vote. and i can tell you, chris, i know a thing or two about politics. republicans got angry with me over the past year when i told them mitt romney was in trouble. i can tell you something. in 2014 in my district in northwest florida, a district jerry caldwell well called the most conservative in america, there's no doubt this would be the right move for me to run as a fiscally conservative republican, a pro-life republican who has said enough to survivalists and extremists. the second amendment is about protecting our homes and hunting with our friends and family members. it's not about military-styled assault weapons that ended up killing, you know, 6-year-old and 7-year-old kids in connecticut. >> i'm on your side. thank you j
